Highgate Literary & Scientific Institution


We offer new ideas, fascinating books, stimulating films and great company. There's a library for borrowing, research and browsing, including a well-stocked children's section, a members' room for reading and a wide range of courses for adults. There are lectures, films, art exhibitions, musical occasions, science discussions, events and trips to the theatre. We keep a local archive on Highgate.

Throughout the year at the HLSI there is a continuous diary of events. There are lectures, theatre trips, book fairs, Antiques and Craft fairs, parties, concerts, and an annual quiz. We also participate in the London Open House weekend and Highgate's Fair on the Square.

Along with events, we also have a number of groups run by members. These include several reading and play groups, the Science Group, the Opera Group, and the theatre club.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
